<p>The poem:</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Tied up in unseen chains,</p>
<p>Under this waning moon,</p>
<p>With the deserted, dry winds,</p>
<p>Where did my tears drift?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My lips – dry, chapped, bleeding</p>
<p>But a heart is injured, deep.</p>
<p>Where to carry this burden to?</p>
<p>Screams, tears, blood….</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am the music, I am the howl,</p>
<p>That pierced through silent nights.</p>
<p>I am the wine, I am the blood,</p>
<p>Of the grails that turned graves.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Again, I pull on these chains.</p>
<p>No! I can’t be free again!</p>
<p>My hands did bleed to quench my thirst.</p>
<p>It falls into the parched throat of earth.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Silence, silence….</p>
<p>That drinks my life.</p>
<p>The dark moonless nights,</p>
<p>That rest in my blue eyes.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am dying alive, in this chain.</p>
<p>Is there a saviour nearby?</p>
<p>Only my muted screams,</p>
<p>On the walls of this silent night.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>A raven, voiceless now.</p>
<p>I see him on the scaffold.</p>
<p>Tranquil, like the fading life.</p>
<p>Would you hear this silence?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The nights continue,</p>
<p>Without a pause, the absence of words.</p>
<p>And at last, a ray did shine.</p>
<p>When the embers died……</p>
<p>Somewhere deep in my soul……</p>
